DID YOU KNOW?

  • The smallest CUP size in bras usually starts from ‘A’ and goes through to ‘DD’, ‘E’ and even bigger.
  • The size you are around the back is your bra size. 
  • For example: if you are a size 12 around the back and a size B in the breasts then your bra size is a 12B.
  • Breasts can start growing as early as age 10 and may not stop growing until your early 20’s.
  • Breasts have a biological purpose – for feeding babies.
  • Having a baby changes your breast shape forever.
  • During puberty breasts can develop rapidly causing discomfort, sensitivity and even stretch marks. 
  • For more information on puberty and changes to your body please visit the following website:   www.girlshealth.gov/body/ 
  • Larger breasts do not necessarily make a girl more feminine, sexier or “better”. Then again smaller breasts do not necessarily make a girl more feminine, sexier or “better” either. (Hint – try personality!)
  • Very large breasts can cause back pain and poor posture. To help avoid these problems always wear a very good supportive bra. These types of bras mostly have wider straps and are designed with extra support.
  • Bras are more than just underwear. They keep your breasts supported throughout the day and assist to stop injury to the breast tissue while exercising.
  • Breast cancer is rare in teenage girls, but it is important to check your breasts for lumps and irregularities as soon as you start having your period – this is especially important if you have a family history of breast cancer.

  • No one will ever know your breasts better than you, so take ownership of them now and then you should notice any changes that occur when they occur rather than when it’s possibly too late.
